Default Why did Mash bowl Soumya?

When he had Rubel and other better options......I am perplexed by this utterly stupid decision....can anyone explain this?

Well, because we didn't have a 5th bowler. He knew we had a good score (not great by any definition), so what he was planning to do is get 10 overs from the likes of SS, Mosaddek and he used Shabbir too. Basically he was calculating where he is going to 10 overs from before the match started, and this defensive strategy is where we need to move away from. He was trying to get his 10 overs from the 5th bowler before the power hitters came in and they would have targetted the 5th bowler knowing they are part timers, it's like he had no choice.

Miraz should have been in the squad no questions asked, the team selection caused a massive imbalance in our squad and England capitalized like professionals they are. Rookie mistake by Bangladesh.Basically the moment Kayes was included and the pitch was flat England won because everything worked in their favour knowing their strength is batting and long batting lineup.

It did send a defensive message that we were on the backfoot esp. using him early in the overs. At leat reserve him for middle overs or something for a breakthrough.

He has become a rubbish defensive captain. I didn't see any slip fielders yesterday.

Did he really believe that his weak bowlers would defend 300 against England without taking initial wickets?

Just to chip away at 5 bowlers quota. Only problem though, Soumya is not accurate enough. One over he can give momentum away to opposition.
